A couple months ago I saw a dazzlingly lit cruise ship go by as I sat watching the sunset on the rocky beach at the dead-end of Shell Road on Siesta Key. I was particularly struck by the fact that it had palm trees on its deck, and made a mental note to seek and find this exciting vessel one day.
Then, day before yesterday, I was loitering around the Sarasota Bayfront with a cigar in one hand and a Starbucks in the other, and what to my wondering eyes should appear but the ship. Interzone has a way of leading you to where you need to be. Now that I know where to find LeBarge Tropical Cruises, you can bet I'll be enlisting their boatly services soon.
